To celebrate the launch of my newest low carb cookbook ‘Keto in 15 Minuten’, today I’m treating you to a delicious Sugar Free Vegan Chocolate Pudding… that is ready in just 5 minutes!

Enjoy it for dessert, as a snack or even for breakfast once and a while ;-) The pudding makes a great plant-based alternative to traditional chocolate mousse and you can even turn it into ice cream treats by pouring it into popsicles.

The recipe is extremely easy and quick to make. All you need to do, is combine all ingredients into a good blender and mix until smooth. I used the Philips High Speed Vacuüm Blender for this recipe. It’s very powerful and a great choice for smoothies, juices, cocktails and even ice cream! Thanks to its unique vacuum technology, smoothies and desserts stay fresher for longer and contain more vitamins.

The base of the chocolate pudding is avocado, a rich source of omega-9 fats (important for heart health) and fiber (great to support gut health and feel satisfied for longer). Choose avocados that are nice and ripe. Those are a lot creamier and richer in flavor.

To replace traditional dairy milk I’m using unsweetened almond milk but feel free to use other non-dairy alternatives such as pure coconut milk (if you love Bounty bars) or hazelnut milk, for all you Nutella fans ;-)

To sweeten the pudding I’m using organic birchwood xylitol today, but you could also use other ‘keto friendly’ sweeteners such as good quality stevia, erythritol or monk fruit if you can get it (at the moment it’s not available in Europe yet). You can read more about keto sweeteners in our 'Keto Made Easy' eBook bundle.

I also like to add a generous spoonful of our ALL GOOD C8 MCT oil (made from coconut) for an extra smooth result.

Keto in 15 Minutes: Vegan Chocolate Pudding – It’s Sugar Free!

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Mix all the ingredients (except for the toppings) until smooth in a powerful blender like the Philips High Speed Vacuüm Blender. Start with 1 cup of nut milk and add more as needed. Flavor with cacao and keto sweetener to taste. Ripe avocados and a powerful blender are essential for a silky smooth result.
  2. Put the pudding in the fridge for one hour or longer, if you have the patience to wait ;-) The pudding tastes even better chilled!
  3. Serve the chocolate pudding as it is, or top with whipped (coconut) cream, finely chopped hazelnuts and dark chocolate chips.

JULIE’S TIPS & TRICKS:

My favorite vegan alternative for whipped cream is whipped coconut cream from a can of chilled unsweetened full-fat coconut milk. You can flavor it with vanilla powder (ground vanilla bean) and a few drops of pure liquid stevia or a sprinkle of your favorite keto sweetener (like natural birchwood xylitol or erythritol, you can read more about those in our Keto Made Easy eBook bundle). Not a coconut fan? Replace with other (vegan) cream of your choice.
